Arranged Employment
Community Living Support (Former Employee) –  Gainesville, GAJuly 14, 2018
Avita arranges caregivers with disabled adults and children. Your manager or supervisor depends on the client you are placed with. Every supervisor I had with this company was wonderful.

poor upper management understanding of front line worker issues
Therapist (Current Employee) –  North GAJune 20, 2018
The pay is low and all employees below upper management are treated as numbers and expendable. You are not given enough time off for the stress level of the work. The mission statement does not fit the way clients or staff are treated.
Pros
benefits, salaried
Cons
high productivity expected, low pay, minimal upper management recepiveness to feedback

Licensed Professional Counselor (Former Employee) –  Demorest, GAMay 26, 2018
Pomp and speeches etc fanfare in orientation weeks builds up the company for new employees. Later on you see why because work load is a nightmare and management is blame and pass the buck except when CCO in the room. Then it's all kinds of love for clinicians. Then and only then. Which adds up to 2 hrs per month on average.
Pros
benefits and training
Cons
everything else

Health Service Technician (Former Employee) –  Dahlonega, GA 30533April 30, 2018
I learned a lot about behavioral health. The trainings required were well organized, and were relevant to my job responsibilities. Management was well organized, and sincerely cared about the employees as well as the work being done.

Summary
Health Service Technician (Current Employee) –  Dahlonega, GADecember 21, 2017
The hours are very long and stressful. The job is not physically demanding but is mentally challenging every second. You must be very patient and dedicated to working in mental health in order to succeed in this profession.
Pros
free lunches
Cons
not paid enough

You have to be passionate about influencing the commuity in this setting
Clinical Intern (Former Employee) –  Gainesville, GAOctober 30, 2017
Avita provided me with a case load of clients who are in severe need of mental health with limited resources. This job provided good experience of impacting a challenging clientele, however I did not like the working environment. Many things at Avita needed updating from the carpet to the paint on the walls. Not a very clean working environment in my opinion.

Management SUCKS
SUDs Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Gainesville, GAMay 12, 2017
More concerned about billable hours than care of the client. Pay sucks, but great benefits. Very political with management. The whole organization is a gossip mill. Keep to yourself (other than clients), don't look left, right or straight ahead... keep your eyes on the floor and walk through your day.
Pros
Lol
Cons
Electronic Documentation System SUCKS

Okay place
STATE CERTIFIED PHARMACY TECHNICIAN (Current Employee) –  Gainesville, GAApril 22, 2017
Avita is a great place to start off as a Pharmacy Tech. The environment is nice and calm. The staff are very nice and helpful including the patients. The pharmacy isnt the same as Walmart or CVS when the techs are the blame for everything. The pharmacist here take the blame and they care for their techs.
Pros
Nice calm and easy place to start off.
Cons
The pay isnt good and there will never be a raise.

Support Cordinator and Academic Teacher (Current Employee) –  Toccoa, GAFebruary 8, 2017
Individual centers are cool but over all the pay is low and stress is high. Staff feels underappreciated at times. Compensation is not given when promised and benefits are not part of the deal upon being hired.
Pros
Great centers

Low pay

Business model philosophy without care for clinical ethics.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GASeptember 20, 2016
A typical day here will include 110% of your work day scheduled to maximize profit for the agency. Many times you will be overbooked and double booked. Professional clinical workers are treated like production line, assembly workers and are blamed for everything. This agency has a 40% turnover rate.
Pros
None
Cons
Too numerous

Great People on the "front lines"...
Counselor (Former Employee) –  Hall County, GAMay 4, 2016
I worked there 5 years. It was a top-heavy environment where the clinicians made the money and the executives got the benefits. When I worked there, they had a quota system where you had to see 6.25 hours of clients a day (on average) or you were considered to be not performing on par (not even factoring in the various paperwork you had to do for the State). My last position was at a rural site. That crew was like a family to me. Those clinicians, staff, psychiatrist and nurse were all solid and seemed to care about each other and the clients as well. That team made work enjoyable. It appears that the new CEO is great, which I am happy for my former coworkers.
Pros
Free Trainings
Cons
Quota system, Trainings Counted Against Your Productivity

Pros

Had to pay for own healthcare very expensive!!
